Dinard, France is a seaside village of lovely elegant villas perched overlooking the Rance estuary.
We came from Saint-Malo by a short boat trip across the estuary. Here you’ll find fancy hotels, a casino, restaurants, panoramic views over the English Chanel, and a sandy beach.
As an example of a restaurant meal in Dinard, this is the choice you could expect at restaurant L’Abri des Flots, 6 Place de la République, 35800 Dinard.

We had a lovely walk along Promenade Clair de Lune, which runs along the estuary foreshore and around the point to the beach. It’s also worth exploring the town’s streets and looking at the elegant 19th century villas.
